Schiff Defends ‘head on a pike’ Comment

Lead House impeachment manager Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) is doubling down on his ‘head on a pike’ comment during the impeachment hearings of President Trump.

Last week, the Senate impeachment hearings began and Schiff made opening and closing arguments.

During his closing arguments, Schiff claimed “a Trump confidant” commented about Republican Senators, saying for those voting against President Trump, “your head will be on a pike.”

Schiff said the comment was reported by CBS News.

Schiff went on MSNBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday morning and defended what he said.

President Trump criticized Schiff and the Democrats on social media.

Earlier in the week, Schiff told the Senate President Trump must be convicted and removed from office to block his reelection.

Schiff is worried if President Trump remains in office he will somehow cheat to get reelected.

On the Senate floor, Schiff said, “For precisely this reason, the president’s misconduct cannot be decided at the ballot box, for we cannot be assured that the vote will be fairly won.”

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) called out Schiff for impeaching President Trump to impact the 2020 presidential election.

During the House hearings, Schiff read a fake telephone call transcript between President Trump and the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky.

Schiff was asked if he regretted reading the fake statement on “Meet the Press” and he said “no.”

Schiff continues to prove he’s not credible and is grossly misleading Americans with his outrageous comments about President Trump.
